I've had migraines my entire life and just recently have been diagnosed with chronic pain.
I am having a very hard time. It's hard for me to fulfill an entire week of work. It's hard for me to keep social obligations - I cannot commit to anything because I am bound by my pain.
It's gotten to the point now where I am having an extremely hard time getting out to bed in the morning. I don't see a point carrying on with my day to day activities when I know the end result is going to be pain. I'm having a hard time finding the motivation to get out of bed in the morning and go to work because I feel such intense guilt for not being 'reliable' The guilt I feel is killing my motivation to lead a normal life in the days I am in slightly less pain.
Anyone have any tips or tricks for the intense feeling of guilt that comes with migraines? I am at my wits end.
